One year ago today, the team at PlayStation was proud to introduce a thrilling new gaming experience crafted with a single goal in mind: pushing the boundaries of play.
PlayStation VR was designed to open a doorway into thrilling and captivating new worlds that electrify our senses. We are confident that virtual reality is that next step in in the evolution of the videogame medium, with a collection of more than 100 gaming experiences designed to make your synapses fire, your heart race, and your muscles twitch.
But we’ve been learning a lot about this medium along the way. Building the future of VR is a lot like creating a new language. Or maybe even an entirely new alphabet! With traditional videogame development, we can draw from nearly 40 years of experimentation, trial and error.
Few creators enjoy so respected a status as Fumito Ueda.
He has served as director on two titles: ICO and Shadow of the Colossus. They are magical adventures, tapping into the wellspring of wonderment that lives in us all. Both forever have a place in PlayStation’s proud history.
When I reintroduced The Last Guardian at E3 2015, I was genuinely moved by the passion of that audience. Few experiences compare to hearing fans rejoice an unexpected light at the end of a very long tunnel.
We’re fresh off the stage at the third annual PlayStation Experience, and this might be our most jam-packed games lineup yet.
Before we dive into the games, I want to take a moment to say thank you. This has been a truly remarkable year for PlayStation–from the historic releases of PlayStation VR and PS4 Pro to the thrilling conclusion of Nathan Drake’s journey in Uncharted 4–and it’s thanks to your passion and enthusiasm that we can come together and celebrate at PlayStation Experience.
Today’s the day — PlayStation 4 Pro is now available at major retailers across North America, and the globe. Whether you’re picking up a system to take advantage of dynamic 4K visuals, or for the boosted processing power that makes games run smoother than ever, you’re in for a treat.
We’ve got a great lineup of more than 40 games that will support PS4 Pro on day-one. That includes already released hits like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, The Last of Us Remastered, Paragon, and Firewatch, which look even more stunning on PS4 Pro, and recent games like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
The wait is over — VR gaming on console is finally here!
While some lucky gamers already have PlayStation VR through our Taco Bell promotion, the system formally launches in the US and Canada (and other regions across the globe) today. We’ve got a great lineup of more than 30 first and third-party games available day one, including PS VR exclusives such as Batman: Arkham VR, Rez Infinite, Driveclub VR, PlayStation VR Worlds, and Rigs Mechanized Combat League.
We have just concluded the PlayStation E3 Press Conference for 2016 and if ever there was a year dedicated to thrilling entertainment experiences, this is it. This year we unveiled a stellar line-up of extraordinary games for both PS4 and the upcoming PlayStation VR. We showed incredible new games including Days Gone from the SIE Bend Studio, the new Spider-Man from Insomniac Games, God of War from SIE Santa Monica Studio, DEATH STRANDING from Kojima Productions, and RESIDENT EVIL 7 from Capcom.
Today marks a special day in the long history of PlayStation with the official formation of Sony Interactive Entertainment LLC (SIE). As you may remember from my last note, this new organization will combine the strengths of both Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. and Sony Network Entertainment LLC into one global interactive entertainment powerhouse.
